Chinese Forget-Me-Not

Sprays of blue flowers are gorgeous in mixed floral bouquets and absolutely stunning when interplanted among the garden veggies, where they attracted hordes of little native pollinators for us. These forget-me-nots are similar in appearance to the classic woodland wildflower but are easier to grow, much taller, more productive, and bloom for the majority of the season. Self-seeds. Grows to 18-24”
